  • Pancake breakfast funds scholarships

    Editor:

    On behalf of the Carrollton Rotary Club, many thanks to the following individuals and businesses, without whose support we could not have hosted two successful pancake breakfasts last Saturday at Down On Main Street restaurant and at the Pioneer Tractor Show. 

  • Meal raised $1,501 for autism project

    Editor:

    I want to thank everybody who either attended or donated to my autism awareness/spaghetti meal April 29.

    Through the meal, the silent auction items and desserts helped raise $1,501.

    There were some great people helping in the kitchen, serving food and collecting the money. I am very grateful to my church, First Baptist.

    Since 2008 I have been able to raise $10,001. I consider myself the army of one. The more understanding of autism that takes place, the better life is.

Thank you all. We appreciate the extra mile you went just for us.

  • Students had good experience on trip

    Editor:

    I was fortunate to be a chaperone on the Carroll County Middle School’s recent trip to Washington D.C. What a great experience – excluding the bus breakdowns – to visit the different sites we had the opportunity to see. Seeing the Capitol Building, the White House and the monuments, etc., is something that will never be forgotten.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank Arkema Carrollton Plant and its employees for their support for my family.  I was employed at this company for more than 25 years before I left to work home health full time.  My brother-in-law was diagnosed with ALS three years ago and my family has been very active in fundraising for this non-profit organization to search for a cure, buy equipment and provide support for people affected by this terrible disease.
